♥ Book Review ♥
The phrase “thought-provoking” couldn’t be a more perfect match for the Lies Between Us. I had eagerly awaited my time with the book and went into it full of hope and excited anticipation.
For a debut author, Ronnie didn’t make it easy for herself with a lot of flip-flopping over various years and having three different voices telling us the story. I found at times I became very confused and as I was reading via kindle it was frustrating for me to flip back to look at dates and names.
If I am completely honest this book was a bit like marmite to me. Sometimes I am really in the mood for it and sometimes it’s just a no-no. With the book, there was a lot I liked and enjoyed but then there were key things that I found that had they been taken out it would have made for a much better read. The confusing elements were unnecessary. I really felt Maise’s voice really wasn’t needed.
I loved the Miller character, he has such a creepy presence and is so well written. His narrative almost had it’s own beat in my head as I read his story.
With various testing topics throughout the storyline, it made for a creepy and at times upsetting read. But the takeaway of the book for me was that it had been a challenging and thought-provoking read with characters that I will never forget.
Overall a good debut by Ronnie Turner, this dark psychological thriller will challenge any reader. Stay with it and you won’t be disappointed.
Lies Between Us will have you closing your curtains and sleeping with the light on!
